Free Shmoney got the BYE in the first round and already qualified to the semifinals. Quarterfinals and semifinals were played in best of 3 series but games for 1st and 3rdplace were best of 5 series.
All three 1st round series went 2-0 but semifinals were way more interesting. Regular season champs Free Shmoney lost the first game against Goal diggers 1:3, they won the possible elimination game 5:3. In the deciding 3rd game both teams didn’t rush things but Free Shmoney showed why they were the best in the regular season, won 2:0 and got the place in the final.
Second semifinal was between Bronze bros and L Casei Defensis. The first game went to L Casei Defensis as they stunned the opponents and won 3:0. The next game was a must win for Bronze bros and they won easily 4:1 but the most entertaining was the last game. Two even teams were on the field, but a little more luck was in the L Casei Defensis side – 2:1 in the game and series!
In the series for 3rd place Bronze bros swept Goal diggers.
Battle between Free Shmoney and L Casei Defensis in the finals started with a L Casei Defensis 6:3 win. The next two games went to Free Shmoney, in the 4th game L Casei Defensis showed pride and that the series won’t stop – 4:2 and the deciding game 5 is here!
We couldn’t ask much more because the battle was very interesting, both teams scored a goal and after 5 minutes there wasn’t a winner, so it meant only one thing – overtime! The extra time started but it only took a few seconds for Ģirts Zāģeris aka GeeZeeCeltics to score a goal – L Casei Defensis (Andris Stikuts and Ģirts Zāģeris) is the winner of the first Rocket League tournament!
